You Are Here by Matthieu Belin takes his first vision of Shanghai from the airplane, of a scale model constructing and destructing, and develops it into a series of eerie images where the whole city is treated as an object without an animated soul.
My paintings consist of large panoramic landscapes depicting isolated moments of the surreal within the context of contemporary culture. These scenes aim to explore and externalize the psychological underpinnings of American society and to question perceptions of reality. My interest is in revealing America as a social landscape and also to reflect an internal space. The placement of fantastical or dreamlike elements in these narratives creates tension between what is familiar and what is distinctively surreal.
